Excellent app. Ad-free, simple, free. There are quite a few options in terms of lengths of inhale/hold/exhale. You can even set a custom one (something I didn't realize at first!). Things I would improve: The flower/mandala is nice, but hard to gauge. A simple loading bar style option would make it clear how many seconds are left. I found that with the standard 4-4-4-4 default, I wasn't exciting fast enough, so I quickly became out of sync. Hopefully part of my morning and night routine.

Great, reliable app. Customization of breathing techniques is an excellent addition. The auditory cues are good, but only indicate beginning of each step. It would be very helpful to have audible cues that relate to overall time for each step as well, especially for those who have vision difficulties - for example, a sound that builds in volume, tone, etc during each phase of the exercise. Thanks for a great app.

Fantastic app! The only thing missing is a vibrate setting for guided breathing so I don't disturb my wife while she sleeps. Maybe if the phone pulses once for in/out, twice for hold, the user can still keep track of the pattern without having to look at the phone or turn on the volume. Or maybe a high frequency pulse for breath in/out and a lower frequency for hold.

Hey there, thanks for the nice feedback! I thought about the vibration but yeah, it's a bit tricky to figure out an optimal way to make the pulsation pattern solid enough to be followed. I'll keep in mind your tip, which sounds interesting!

What's new

Here's the biggest Breathly update so far, Breathly v2!
I completely redesigned Breathly's interface from the ground-up, which is essential in order to introduce new features (in the future) that have been requested for ages (pure dark more, saving multiple custom patterns, etc...).
With this update I also implemented a more effective light/dark, and tweaked a couple of settings.
I haven't removed previously existing feature — but I'm open to feedback!
Have a great day!
